Liberace Musuem Collection Exhibits Thrive With “Covid Crushing” Practices

The Liberace

The famous Liberace Museum Collection has drawn thousands of viewers and top attraction reviews in recent years

Covid 19 threatened that success

With critically acclaimed exhibits at the Paris Museum of Modern Art, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and the MET Gala; with artifacts making key appearances on the 2019 Monte Carlo Fashion week, 2019 Grammys and the 2020 Oscars; with Liberace’s image licensed for television and film including Mozart in the Jungle, the Jim Gaffigan Show, The Simpsons, Family Guy, HBO’s Behind The Candleabra and Ridley Scott’s Bladerunner 2049; thousands paid well for private tours of the Liberace Museum Collection at Thriller Villa and Liberace Garage.  But by mid February, 2020, the Chairman of the Foundation had seen the writing on the wall.  Covid 19 was coming.

The Devil Wears Liberace:  Seminal fashion event of Vogue‘s Anna Wintour brings famed costumes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art

New York City celebrates #Liberace100

Under the direction of the iconic fashion publisher of American Vogue, the Met Gala has become one of the greatest influences on fashion design.  This year, Liberace’s authentic costumes are among the 175 pieces exhibited for the 550 super-VIP guests.

“So, instead of Papal robes, which we saw last year, think Liberace capes. Plus, designers like Jeremy Scott, Jean Paul Gaultier, Thom Browne, and even Virgil Abloh. There are some new, younger names on the roster as well, like Richard Quinn, Vaquera, and Gypsy Sport.”
